Recently revamped museum essentially covering the cognac industry but great for kids with hands on stuff. Excellent english translations of the story boards and free audio guide.

What a little gem! The exhibits are in English-quite a first for us in France! We also got a free audio translation for the videos-great films of the history & processing of cognac. Who knew it was so complicated? Don't miss this on your visit!

Took family to see how cognac is distilled, we walked to the museum from the town centre after parking near the river. There are many other distilleries to visit in the town. The train around the centre is good for people who find it difficult...More
